As you know, t!m Holtz and Ranger recently launched a "limited edition seasonal set" of Distress Inks in three gorgeous new colors that are perfect for the fall ... and we received our order at the Playground on Monday for those who had contacted us to get on the reserved order list (a.k.a. "the list"). But those of you who are Ranger fans -- and we have many at the Playground -- can understand these new inks caused quite a frenzy, which t!m Holtz has shared on the Ranger blog. Here's the story in a nutshell:
- t!m had a great idea to create a three-pack of distress inks in new seasonal colors, with the idea being to make them available once a year during their particular "season".
- So t!m and Ranger got to work, creating the first-ever limited fall edition and manufacturing what should have been weeks worth of inventory. And it sold out in just six hours!
- Selling out their inventory in such a short time was totally unexpected! In an effort to try to meet the demand, they went to work on a solution, securing more of what it takes to make another batch of the seasonal fall distress inks. They'll be making one more production run of the fall seasonal distress inks that they anticipate will ship out in the next few weeks.
- If you didn't get on "the list" for the first order of fall seasonal Distress Inks (pictured below), give us a call at 631.539.9888 to reserve a set of fall seasonal Distress Inks from our next order. Note that because these are limited editions, there are no plans for re-inkers, stains, etc. in these new colors.
Now normally, that would be the happy ending to the story. But there's more ...
You may have noticed that these are "seasonal" Distress Inks. So guess what ... t!m Holtz and Ranger have announced that a Winter seasonal set of Distress Inks will be released on November 1. If you'd like to get on the "winter list" give us a call at 631.539.9888 to reserve your set! Sorry, no details about colors or pictures are available just yet, but we'll keep you posted!
